Job Description

This is an exceptional opportunity for an ambitious Creative Director to take the creative reigns at one of Birmingham's most celebrated agencies. With a culture that's the envy of many and an outstanding client portfolio, this is a seriously exciting opportunity.

Rather than being prescriptive in their approach, this agency work closely with clients to identify key insights that will help them take their products to market in a way that has real cut through with their target audiences. As such, as their Creative Director, you won't be constrained by channels and will be as comfortable working with a big advertising idea, as you are at developing exciting experiential activity, or digital / social engagement.

We're looking for someone who exudes passion and positivity, who's intrigued by new platforms and the opportunities these offer creatives, who will enthuse and excite the team and the clients and who the creative team will be inspired to work alongside. There's no ego in this agency, just an awesome culture that allows people to thrive.

To be considered it's essential that you have a glittering track record of success in respected agencies and a portfolio bursting with current, fresh, cross-channel thinking.

Big brand experience is a pre-requisite, as is the ability to lead, motivate and inspire those around you. All-in-all, you'll be someone who has a hunger to consistently produce the very highest level of work possible, who brings a natural curiosity to experiment with traditional and emerging channels. And to keep pushing creative boundaries.

As such, you'll have a knack of really getting to the core of a brief and using this to help convert new opportunities. So you'll need to blend creative genius with commercial savvy.

What's more, this agency's strategic strength is extremely well honed so it's important you're comfortable working with planners, taking their insights and marrying this with the very best creative execution.

To excel, you'll be comfortable challenging client thinking and will have a burning desire to help the agency take their creative reputation up to another level. In return, big opportunities exist for whoever comes in.

With many people now choosing a life outside London, but still wanting to push their creative careers forward, this agency has to be front of the queue.

All applications will be treated in the strictest of confidence.
